Thank you Meagan Schultz for including the Women’s Fund community book read of She Speaks in your latest newsletter!

From Megan…

I wanted to send out a quick email with some other cool events around town, in case you’re itching to get out and socialize with cool women.

➡ You may know that I host a podcast with my friend Shelly, and she and I interviewed four women entrepreneurs in the food/bev industry last week. They are part of a local collective called Let’s Talk Womxn and LTW is hosting a huge bash next Wednesday 3/8 in honor of National Women’s Day. I’ll be there with a good friend (👋🏼 hey, Nell!) so come join us if it fits with your schedule and sounds like your idea of fun.  (food + dancing before 9pm + drag queens + women = fun!)

➡ If that doesn’t work for you on the 8th, this one might: Carrie Mihal-Carlisle (you may have met her at one of our events) is hosting a home buying seminar for women at the Sugar Maple on 3/8 and would love to help out any women who may be interested in buying or investing in real estate. It’s free and she will buy the first round of drinks for attendees. Her co-host, Courtney Bennett, is a loan officer who will cover the financial part of preparing to buy and Carrie will cover the process of house hunting and working with a real estate agent. (women + independence + a free drink = awesome!)

➡ Another podcast guest, Emerald Mills, opened Turning Tables Restaurant last summer (in the Turner Hall Building near Fiserve), and each third Thursday she hosts a Diverse Dining event. A chance to meet new people with conversation geared toward learning about new cultures and new ideas. This month it’ll be on March 16, from 5-7 but check their insta page a little closer to the date for tickets to be sure. I’m hoping to get a babysitter for this one! (food + curated conversation + new people = my jam!)

➡ And on Tuesday, March 28, The Women’s Fund of Milwaukee will be hosting a community book club, and in partnership with local storytelling connoisseurs Ex Fabula, will be reading aloud important speeches from women throughout history. (Organized by Kate Brejcha, another one of the fabulous women you may have met at one of our events!) The book is She Speaks, and if you haven’t heard of the Women’s Fund, you should know they are “a community foundation working to grow [their] endowment to ensure there are always resources available to strategically support initiatives to advance equity for women and girls.” Um, hello. Yes please! I’ll be at this one, even if I haven’t read the book. (intelligent women + storytelling + nibbles = woot!) [click here to register.]

➡ And speaking of book clubs, my co-host Shelly is hosting a REVERSE book club. What is that, you say? Why it’s only a book club where you don’t have to read the book, but you get the benefit of hearing about a book from someone who has! (That’s my kind of club). Hear about the book she’s reading this month, and if you feel so inclined, share a little of what you’re reading with the group on Zoom. The next one is Monday, March 27 – follow Shelly for more details and registration to get the link. Plus she sends awesome newsletters. (book knowledge without reading + intelligent conversation + Shelly = perfect combo).

Hope to see you at one, or all of these!
